Invited a good friend Jeff and his 3 boys out for a short Musky trip today. Also along was my main man Jim to help with the boys that were ages 6 to 15. Lines were in the water around 4pm in an area to keep the boys busy with fish. Jack the 6 yr old was an animal on the rods. That boy would not give up. After 4 or 5 boated I figured it was time to go to the spot where we hooked the big fish yesterday. We almost made it there when a board rod got bit. I grabbed the rod and decided this was one for Jim to tackle. After an awesome end of the battle at the back of the boat I netted the fish. This fish knew how to escape and would have if not hooked so well. I knew it had some length but I found out it had some weight when I tried to bring it over the side. Jim insisted on a length measurment and while I was messing with the net I heard 54 so I took a closer look and we both saw it at 54 1/2 without the tail pinched. She swam away fine and we went back to fishing until 8:15 when we pulled lines. We ended up boating 12 for 12 on assorted brands of tails.
Great night with great company. I think the boys are hooked!

The kids cranked in most all the fish except for 3 big ones. Maybe the good landing ratio was due to the fish just inhaling the baits tonight. But we did have a couple other knock offs that didn't hook up. We will get out soon brother!
